About Early April
Early April was formed in April 2004 by four musicians based out of Chicago. They became friends from separate local bands, who wanted to make some different music. Guitarist Adam Pilarczyk and bassist Jason "Goat" Henricy have been in bands together since they were in high school. More recently, the two were in a band named Pushbutton. Through mutual agreement, Pushbutton shared a practice space on the south side of Chicago with another local band named Swellbox. This was when Adam and Goat first started jamming with singer Ed Larson and drummer Joe Tufano, who also have been in bands together since high school. Before and after practice with their own bands, the four of them would play cover songs, along with blues, funk, reggae, and whatever else they could come up with. Eventually, the mutual love of music and the friendship that they developed became more than enough incentive to start their own original band. Recently however, drummer Joe Tufano has left the band to persue his family life back home in California. Tufano has since been replaced b long-time friend and fellow musician, Roger Reyes. As the newly dubbed, Early April, the four talented and diverse musicians developed an original and refreshing sound that combines both post-grunge and progressive rock. Currently, the band is now focused on releasing their first independent record album, "Through The Eyes Of Her", an 11 song opus of rock perfection which was released on the internet this past June 2007.
